Florent Malouda insists Chelsea are still focused on regaining the Premier League title.

Chelsea's 0-0 draw with Liverpool on Sunday, coupled with Arsenal's 2-0 win over Blackburn on Monday, has left Avram Grant's side eight points off the pace.

But French winger Malouda will not throw in the towel in the title race, despite Chelsea competing on three other fronts.

"We have to remain focused on the league," said Malouda in the Daily Mirror. "You can't choose which competition to win.

Motivation

"We are a good team and we set a target to win every game.

"All the top clubs look for that. You are happy to win and very angry when you drop points. That is your motivation."

Chelsea face Huddersfield Town in the fifth round of the FA Cup this weekend and resume the UEFA Champions League quest against Olympiakos next week.

And later this month, the Blues will meet London rivals Tottenham Hotspur in the final of the Carling Cup at Wembley.
